Other questions about "Riverbank"

Q: "I went to a riverbank to see cherry blossoms."
"I went to riverbanks to see cherry blossoms."
Which is more natural when the cherry trees are on the both sides of the river although I went to only one side?
A: "I went to the riverbank to see the cherry blossoms."

If you say "a riverbank", it feels like you just went to one at random. After the verb "to go to", in 95% of cases it is followed by "the", because it is usually a chosen place and not an undefined place (e.g. "I went to the cinema / the conbini / the doctor's / etc.")
Also, for the same reason I would say "the cherry blossoms" and not just "cherry blossoms", because it's the specific cherry blossoms that are on the riverbank, and not just random ones.

Another natural way to say the same thing would be "I went to see the cherry blossoms by the river."
